Rev. Paul Abbass had resigned from his position of Executive Director of Talbot House Recovery Centre in Frenchvale in February after receiving charges, all unspecified. But, the only addiction recovery centre out the Halifax has now reinstated him at his position after those allegations were proved wrong, a recent report has uncovered.
It has been found that soon after Abbass received complaints, an investigation was planned by the Department of Community Services into the Cape Breton centre. And the same found that not Abbass, but the centre was lacking while following some procedures.
A number of failures were seen during the operational review, following which the investigating group had asked the Talbot House to prepare it for a complete new centre. As per the report, the re-appointment of Abbass by the centre owners is an effort towards the development of the same.
Though, earlier board of directors' Chairman John Gainer had affirmed that proposal process is complicated for a small board. An offer of Wayne Yorke's, an addictions service expert, support and help made it agree to the same.
After the return of Abbass, Gainer said, "He has demonstrated leadership, he has demonstrated vision. The population, the individuals that are actually most important in this entire discussion is the addicts - and they trust him".
